What is a Carbon Forkprint?
Simply put, a Carbon Forkprint is the carbon footprint of food. Here at E.Mission we use academic data to help food businesses understand the Carbon Forkprint of the dishes on their menus. Our expert team works in partnership with outlets to give their customers a unique experience; we provide easy to understand information about the environmental impact of what they eat.
Our menu analysis service is the first of its kind and calculates the Carbon Forkprint of each dish, based on the ingredients’ cooking, sourcing and how emission intensive the food production process is. This can help restaurants and customers understand how simple changes can have a significant impact on the menu’s footprint. Displaying the Carbon Forkprint on menus, in a similar way to calories, helps consumers make more informed decisions about what they eat.
